From The Fort Morgan Times (Dan Barker):

Lincoln County in particular had little precipitation since last summer, and farmers there can now apply for emergency loans and other aid due to drought conditions.

On Monday, the USDA said Lincoln County was designated as the primary disaster area, but qualifying growers in adjacent counties can apply, too. That includes Washington, Arapahoe, Cheyenne, Crowley, Elbert, El Paso, Kiowa, Kit Carson and Pueblo counties.
